The location and scenery alone are reason enough to go, but there are many more reasons that make South Wales Miners' Museum a great day out.
The Welsh Miners Museum portrays the life of a miner with stories of hardship, struggle and dangerous and dirty work. There are great features such as the traditional miner's cottage scene, historic photographs and outdoor exhibits.
With adult admission prices just £3, £2 for seniors and children and under 5's going free, South Wales Miners' Museum makes a great, cheap day out for the whole family. Don't forget to stop by if you're in or around Port Talbot!
